Prime ministerial hopeful and leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Nawaz Sharif suffered a significant setback against PTI backed independent independent candidate Shahzada Gastasap in NA-15 Mansehra.
Unofficial tallies from National Assembly Constituency NA-15 Mansehra reveal Shahzada Gastasap’s triumph with 74,713 votes, while Mian Nawaz Sharif secured 63,054 votes.
This unforeseen outcome signals a major upset in the electoral landscape, prompting speculation about the shifting political dynamics in Mansehra. Despite his setback in NA-15, Nawaz Sharif remains a contender in the NA-130 constituency in Lahore, where he faces independent candidate Yasmin Rashid.
As the electoral process unfolds, the defeat in Mansehra injects a dose of uncertainty into Nawaz Sharif’s political trajectory and underscores the volatile nature of the ongoing elections.
